Abstract
We conducted this study for determining the value of indirect serum markers such as aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), INR (International Normalized Ratio) and platelet counts and the roles of the scores such as AST-to-ALT ratio (AAR), AST-to-platelet ratio index (APRI), FIB-4 index, King’s score, Goteborg University Cirrhosis Index (GUCI) and FibroQ in predicting severity of fibrosis in treatment naive patients with non-cirrhotic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Treatment naive non-cirrhotic chronic HCV patients who underwent percutaneous liver biopsy between 01 January 2012 and 01 June 2015 were included in the study. For evaluating the difference in variables, patients were divided into 2 groups such as no or minimal fibrosis group (fibrosis score

Key words: Hepatitis C virus, fibrosis, indirect serum markers, AAR, APRI, FIB-4 index, King’s score, GUCI, FibroQ.
